'A mind-expanding tour of the world without leaving your paintbox. Every colour has a story, and here are some of the most alluring, alarming, and thought-provoking. Very hard painting the hallway magnolia after this inspiring primer.'
Simon Garfield


The Secret Lives of Colour tells the unusual stories of the 75 most fascinating shades, dyes and hues. From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, Picasso's blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, acid yellow to kelly green, and from scarlet women to imperial purple, these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history. In this book Kassia St Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colours and where they come from (whether Van Gogh's chrome yellow sunflowers or punk's fluorescent pink) into a unique study of human civilisation. Across fashion and politics, art and war, The Secret Lives of Colour tell the vivid story of our culture.

Without You: Living With Loss
The book is a compilation of letters from mothers, fathers, children, friends and partners who have lost someone, each letter written directly to the person they miss so dearly.

The purpose of ‘Without You – Living With Loss’ is to remind those who have suffered a bereavement, or who are facing a bereavement, that they can and will survive, and will go on to achieve things that the one who is gone could be hugely proud of.

The book, edited by Orlaith, features letters from members of the public, politicians, musicians, writers, broadcasters and journalists, with all proceeds from its sale donated to the Hospice.
